AI is a major focus area of Aalto University and the Department of Computer Science. Building on the department's strong tradition that includes neural network pioneers Teuvo Kohonen and Erkki Oja.

Our research contributes both to the fundamentals of AI across its many subfields, as well as to the accelerating practical impact AI has on businesses and societies.

The Department of Computer Science is a key player in the Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence FCAI, a major ecosystem of academic, private and public sector partners.
